Dark vs Light Pack bind rules – having them BoP is a problem. We would like to resolve it, it isn’t as simple as changing them to bind on legacy as they wouldn’t get unlock in collections or work with armor pieces you already have from previous packs. We are working on some way to address this. We acknowledge that it isn’t working the way we intended.
Dear Eric Musco

I have a solution since coding and or making it BoL would make it hard to get in legacy tab.

1. Create an vendor that sells all the items, Gear, Weapons, Mounts we can get from the Dark vs Light Packs.
make the currency required for those items on the vendor, the items we received. but Bind on Legacy versions.
Example. I got Kreia head gear and chest and gloves DvL packs which is BoP. I do happen to have the entire set on on a different toon except for the head piece. Now those items we received from DvL packs are BoP. So currency would be Kreia BoP head piece for the Kreia BoL head piece so i can transfer it to my other toon who was missing the head.

Now, i know you said Making them Legacy would make it hard to get added to the legacy (for reference see quote).
so on to next solution.

2. Make same vendor selling those same items as the vendor in option 1. The only difference here would be instead of selling those BoL items, it would sell BoP. So now i have Kreai BoL head piece but it would not get added to collection even though i have the entire set now on the toon that was missing the head because its BoL.
So now i go to vendor 2, search for Kreia BoP head and buy that with my BoL Kreai head piece resulting in me getting the BoP version which now should be considered the normal version and get added to collection since i had all other pieces equipped before and should be registered now as the full set.

They pledged to follow me... when they thought i was alive.
They turned, when they thought i was gone.
So i will come back from the dead.. to lay claim to what i am owned!

I'm still not buying their legacy bound collection excuse, but It's nice to know they've seen how it was a dick move. I don't see how changing the rewards to be bound to legacy couldn't be the simplest, least effort, and most effective solution. To me that is a minor scripting change.

It's just EA doing what EA does, exactly how they do it with their mobile game cash scams.

Bioware, you make good games... but you're working for the Empire.

Of all the things they did wrong with this event, making the rewards BoP may have been the absolute worst.

Even if you keep everything on new characters, you have to plan to complete each tier with the same character, just in case you get more pieces to the same set. Otherwise, it is impossible to complete your collection to unlock.

I really can't figure any logical reason that they did this. Everything should be bound to legacy on pickup.

The level of desperation of how badly these items NEED to be legacy bound is appalling, I find the chances of getting all the pieces on one character to complete a collection is ridicously low. The whole reason I even thought about playing the event was for the Satale Shan armor for my level 65 Jedi knight.

The first four tiers can be completed with only one character. If you're that worried about pack consolidation, just work on one character until you've cleared Champion Level.

For Eternal Level, simply don't run Eternal Championship until your off-faction DvL toon hits 65.

For Legendary Level, just make buying the Datacron Decoration the last thing you do - on your main DvL toon.

It's very easy to make sure all 85 packs get on the same character, really... I don't know why there are so many posts complaining about it.

I'm going to repeat a request from a few months ago and keep repeating it, because it's no less important now. Please return the RP label, in some form to the servers that were previously labelled as RP.

The RP server designation is what lets new players know where they can find RP communities. Player turnover in any game is significant and within RPers is no different. For the RP community to thrive, it needs a steady influx of new players to replace those who've moved on. If you spread newly arriving RPers between all servers, because they don't know on which servers to find the existing communities, many will likely abandon the search before finding anyone, if they're looking on the wrong server. Meanwhile, the existing RP communities will slowly shrink with the lack of new players.

I realise that RPers are a minority in this game. This means that our communities can sometimes be hard to find, drowned out by the number of players going through PvE and PvP only. All the more reason why we need certain servers to be designated for RP, so that new players at least have a place to start looking.

Please return an RP designation, in some form that will be clear to new players, to the already established RP servers.

I received so many of the same items from the first set of box's it was totally ridiculous, and i sure as heck don't have a need for 2 bound revan's mask on one toon that i cant move or add to collections since i didn't get the entire set of anything. I am seriously pissed off at this. Also hurry up with 16 so i can collect my rewards this is the only achievement i don't have at this point, and it is torture looking at everything being done except chapter 16 and not getting anything for it.
